Kodaikanal: Puducherry based ITTA-P and CDAT Nellai has jointly bagged the ‘Best Association’ awards during the recetnly concluded Confed-ITA summit here. Both the associations had bagged the awards together. Here is a small analysis of how both the associations bagged the awards.
The association mainly focussed on creating a ‘Brand ITTA-P’. The association projected itself as a 15-year-old forum with top-notch professionalism for the members of the fellow associations and other government and non-government bodies. This had made the association form as a professional body. Arun Subbu Rangan, former president of the association calls the streamlining of the association right from the membership. “We made sure the validity of the membership only for an year. This automatically makes the members have regular interaction with the association through renewal every year”, he says. He also says that during the tenure, meetings were organized without any fail and guest speakers were also invited time-to-time. “Registration under MSME, connect with the local industry bodies, human resource management, promotion of the association’s official website and ensuring the pageviews to enhance business for vendors ,distributors and members through digital means were some of the key achievements of the forum”, Arun says further adding thanking the previous office bearers who had helped him set standards. The association has also never failed to involve the family of the members into the activities.
One of the key success methods of the association is segregating the project within the office bearers. “We had 6 office bearers and 6 EC members. Every team of office bearer and EC member will take care of one activity and set short-term and long-term goals. With that, we were able to achieve desired results as it had cropped up healthy competition within the team resulting in the overall success”, Arun Subbu Rangan concluded.
